Featuring: W. Kenneth Connolly

From the ancient deserts of Israel to the shores of the New World, “The Indestructible Book” documents an incredible story of faith and sacrifice. This commentary by Bible scholar Ken Connolly tells of believers inspired by God to protect the Bible and carry its message of hope and salvation forward through the centuries.

The Scriptures were banned, burned and ridiculed by rulers of every age, from Roman emporers to English monarchs. Many who dared to read and share the Word met horrible deaths. Yet God’s truth could not be crushed. The greatest worldly powers were no match for the mission of the Apostles, crusaders, translators, reformers, preachers and printers dedicated to spreading the Gospel of The Indestructible Book.

Filmed on location in Israel, Europe, Britain, and the U.S., “The Indestructible Book” captures the spectacular sweep of history with visual images as rich and varied as the story it unfolds.

Positive—It tells the truth, which should be mandatorily played in our colleges today! That is the thing that draws Bible believing Christians away from the faith—is College! Sad, but true.

Positive—This video series was played in our Sunday School class over several weeks. I was absolutely glued to the screen. I love history, and this was a fascinating “documentary”. This could easily be the basis of a college course. I wanted to pause it repeatedly, to either ask questions or discuss related thoughts; frustrating, because I couldn’t do that. Plan on purchasing it to see it at my pace, and then to give to our son, entering Regent Law School. Quite an inspiration!

Positive—I have “The Indestructible Book,” by Ken Connolly, on VHS and will be ordering it on DVD. This is one of the most amazing films I have ever seen. Ken Connolly goes on location to several beautiful, historical parts of the world where he describes in detail how we got our Bible and describes the martyrdom of all those who sought to get the Bible to the people, who died, usually by burning at the stake, just for translating the Bible into English! The Printing Press made all the difference in the world to the dispersion of the Bible to the people. The very first book printed on a printing press was the Bible!

I am fortunate to own the full color book, “The Indestructible Book” as well.

This series goes straight to the heart and creates a longing to hold our own Bible as very dear to us and to read and study it daily. All those who sought to translate the Holy Scriptures into English were killed as heretics! The very least we can do is love the Word of God they provided for us! The cost was very high! This film gave me a greater appreciation of my own Bible and the fact that I am free to read it! But there will come a time when even this will change. Don’t take that freedom for granted!
